Tendinopathy is a term used to describe a dysfunctional tendon. This can include a tendon being painful, but just because it is dysfunctional does not mean it will be painful. A tendon that is dysfunctional will often have in-growth of new blood vessels and nerves and may produce inflammatory chemicals which further irritate the tissue and nerves in that area.
